Rogue Midwives: Birthing on the Sly

10-03-2004 22:01

Women helping other women deliver babies is as old as humanity. It makes sense. So why do mainstream doctors and hospitals act like midwifery is some radical, dangerous, medically-irresponsible quackery?

The CPT decided to visit Turkey in the following days, claiming that it will control the F-Type prisons.
Therefore it has asked the Turkish Ministry of Justice for the necessary permissions.
In a statement published by the Anadolu Agency, the official press agency of the Turkish State, the CPT declared: "The committee is going to visit the physical and social facilities within the prisons. The physical and social facilities of the F-Type prisons in Turkey are in a very well condition.

Hackney flats not evicted

08-03-2004 13:04

Most of the flats on estates in the kingsland area have not been evicted, and the situation has calmed down. Some unoccupied places have been smashed & boarded up by the council - I don't know whether any of these are squatters' homes, and the police say they have evicted some crack & smack houses. The council now say they will issue possesion proceedings through the courts, although they may try more DIY evictions in the comming days, especially if any flats are left unocupied.

07-03-2004 00:45

Today the SWP used different people to speak at the 2nd European meeting to organises the London ESF. The green party deputy mare spoke but didn’t say anything – just like a politician. Finally, maybe we may perhaps might start thinking about the process… the was a secret smocked filled room were a real deal was done? Except this was the ESF so it was a light open room with lots of people looking on that did the deal… which maybe possibly could perhaps make the London ESF fulfil the principals of the Social forum movement. Please don’t be put off from participating because maybe, possibly, the is a chances the sects that fail to run the show maybe have noticed that they are not as essential as they always insisted.
